I have always held firm to my belief that both sides should honor their verbal commitments to one another. However, if players are going to do this sort of thing, I don’t think people should make such a huge deal out of it when coaches do it. I understand that the players are only 17-year old kids, but I am very staunch in my belief that your word should mean something.
Can’t speak for other schools, but I know for a fact that Clemson has held this up for players who could no longer play. J.K. Jay had a sever back injury and had to walk away from football his freshman year but still remained on scholarship. There was also a LB who was paralyzed before arriving on campus but Dabo also honored his scholly as well. But I guess Ole Piss needs every scholarship they can get…..
